i discovered my first guest via my pal Jessica. she texted me one day saying “do you follow Mad Mim? I think you’d really like her a lot,” and i obediently headed over to check her out.
Jess was so right – i fell in love instantly. Miriam has a super cool retro/modern style, she’s the master of hand printing (she’s teaching a class on it at Sewing Summit this year!), awesome crafts, is an open and honest writer, she’s just a person I liked right away through her blog.
she also does a mean refashion, a skill she demonstrates today. head over to Mad Mim to check out Miriam’s excellent refashion of a shapeless muumuu to a shapely ’40s dress for herself! pretty incredible transformation, really. here’s a preview of the result…
and once you’re through browsing around Mad Mim, be sure to visit craftiness is not optional to see what her first guest cooked up! (hint: it’s Delia, it’s a tutorial, and it’s adorable!).

Lesson learned. Obey the Jess.
I love Miriam and the dress she made is so perfectly lovely (of course!).
